Hello Lovers!

We Love Colors is having a really cool contest right now, I wanted to share it with you, because there are really talented people here on ColourLovers. Sorry for late notice the contest ends tomorrow (Sept 10). (Please forward to whomever may be interested, this competition is open to everyone.)


Contest Information

The prizes are amazing, over $500 worth, which include a Wacom Tablet, iTunes Gift Cards, Helvetica Moleskines, Pantone Mugs, Blurt.com Gift Certificates, and Walls Notebooks.

For those of you that are not familiar We Love Colors is a clothing company that does all of our own textile coloration at our location in Miami, Florida. Currently over 50 colors and funky multicolored designs we call Splash Colors. We started as a family business 2002 / 2003 with me and my dad with our first employee my sister. My dad was a expert dyer that could create any color on fabric by blending together dyes by eye. He would hit the color dead on with max 3 attempts!!

Our website is:

Thank you, Craig

I agree about OkayButWhy and and-again, and I'll add
http://www.colourlovers.com/lover/AwkwardWalrus
and
http://www.colourlovers.com/lover/Livi%20Lou
to the list.

Edith: ShadowApple12 is one of the accounts I initially connected to Erika & Co last summer when it was created, but they have mostly remained quiet and have not been on very often since the end of the summer.
I can't tell for sure, but the wording in the profile definitely looks familiar, and it fits the pattern of several other (mostly deleted) accounts which I had been watching back then.

After Erika & Co were briefly banned last year, and then allowed back, they made a slew of new accounts but these, and some extras which they already had, remained pretty much dormant, the busiest of them maybe creating a few things every few weeks, and not really drawing much attention to them.
(The person in question was probably busy trolling other forums...)
Anyway, behappy is one of those accounts.
Made last June, active until maybe July or so, from then on a few palettes a month, before for whatever reason about 2 month ago or so, she started turning up the volume, both in output, and in attention seeking, and gradually, more and more of those sleeper accounts started being used, and new ones added. And many miraculously found their way into her followers list...

Anyway, that seems to be the status right now.

As several of you have already said, it sickens me to be suspicious of people here, yet I find myself not trusting new members, especially those that claim to be very young and come across as very chipper, very involved.
And since there seems to have been a HUGE influx of these troll accounts since December, I am automatically wary of anybody who signed up in December or January.

I don't want to be, I am not naturally a suspicious person (believe it or not!), but I find myself closely looking over new members' profiles and the people they follow before I can bring myself to love their creations.
This is not a relaxing way to spend ones time...

What gets me even more though is seeing other, legit members, and especially those I care about, either not realize or not care that they are interacting with sockpuppets.
I hate seeing others being lied to, it's a pet peeve if you will, and so this is the big issue I have with these people.
Not that they are there.
But that other people unknowingly are friendly with them while they are essentially being taken advantage of by these trolls.

I have pretty much stopped communicating with most people on CL because of all that, especially new people.
This is definitely not the place it was when I first came here, which was not long ago at all compared to most of you.

Edith: I find it sad also that we have to wonder about people now. It makes me angry even more so. And I, too, wonder about and-again. http://www.colourlovers.com/lover/OkayButWhy also.

I have done enough griping about things in the past and it caused a lot of hurt feelings, so I really wanted to avoid that this time. I find, though, that as much as I try to look past what's going on with these trolls/spammers/sock puppets and enjoy the site, I can't and I'm not able to keep my mouth shut about it.

Souldew: Nope, we have no moderation here whatsoever. People are expected to "work out their own problems", which would be awesome if we lived in a world where everyone could behave and think like civilized humans but we don't. So, yeah, that's why we're in the state we're in now.
